What Our Clients Say

Rare… Penetrating Knowledge of SQL

What a rare, great feeling it is to know when you hand off a project to someone, you can sit back and simply expect the best possible outcome. Mark's cool confidence and eagerness to deliver results are surpassed only by his deep penetrating knowledge of SQL. Whether it's design, development, optimization, or recovery, Mark is a SQL Gem.

David Lerner
President, Lerner Solutions

Complex and heavy 5,000+ concurrent connection databases need tuning, indexes, best practices, up-time, and smooth performance over all

Mark is an expert in large scale MS SQL Database environments which exceed 5,000+ concurrent connections. He has mastered the understanding of complex, heavy load TSQL transactions. When tuning, database structure, indexes, stored procedure, best practices, up-time, and smooth performance are all important, Mark is the type of DBA who truly knows how to keep these high standards. If you are growing, your feature sets are centered around MS SQL, then developers will benefit greatly from Mark's time to more efficiently write code. If you would like to sleep better at night and know your database will be running well in the morning, then I would recommend finding a DBA with the kind of skill set Mark has proven time and time again.

Significant Performance Improvement in minutes

In just a few minutes, Mark was able to find significant performance improvement opportunities in my database. These improvements were in areas I hadn’t even considered. Mark came up with many ideas; just the top 2 to 3 were enough to give us a significant performance boost. Mark has extensive knowledge when it comes to SQL Server. I can’t imagine there is anything he does not know. We plan to continue to work with him on a regular basis and continue to enjoy the benefits of his knowledge.

With little notice, Mark was able to find and fix a number of different SQL misconfigurations and wasteful practices. After a weekend of work, the customer realized a 60% decrease in CPU utilization as a direct result of Mark's work.

On an urgent SQL issue, Mark did a great job. Our customer moved their SQL environment from a rack solution with Fiber SAN to the Azure cloud. Doing this exposed all of the wasteful IO practices they had in their SQL environment.

Quickly identified and fixed SQL performance issues we had struggled with for weeks

I highly recommend Mark Varnas as a SQL Server DBA. Mark worked for us on a project for several months. Upon kicking off the project, Mark was able to quickly identify and fix several SQL performance issues we had been struggling to trace for several weeks. Additionally, he made several other recommendations and configuration changes that had a significant positive impact on database performance. I will absolutely use Mark again in the future, and would recommend him to anyone looking for a strong SQL DBA.
